Advanced Practice Provider Student Clinical Placement
The University of Kansas Health System welcomes all current graduate Advanced Practice Provider (APP) students, including APRNs and physician assistants, to apply for clinical placement. Collaboration between physicians, nurses, researchers, educators, APPs and other professionals who share their expertise leads to a strong learning environment.
Please understand that we strive to accommodate students as much as possible, but we cannot guarantee a spot. Preceptor availability is very limited for those students seeking primary, family medicine or pediatric placements. We encourage the prospective student to continue exploring other options. Do not assume that this request is equal to a confirmation of placement.
Due to COVID-19, additional reviews are being made of every placement request, evaluating for the impact of added students on space, PPE use and other concerns as they arise. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
The University of Kansas Health System provides healthcare in Kansas and Missouri. You are required to have a current nursing license to complete clinical hours. Kansas has joined the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). You cannot begin your clinical placement if you do not have a nursing license from Kansas or a compact state. This does not apply to physician assistant students.
Make sure there is a current affiliation agreement between your school and The University of Kansas Health System. Placements cannot be made until an agreement is in place. If an agreement is in place, complete the placement request form below. Once the form has been submitted, the team will review your request and contact you regarding next steps.
Please note: Requests cannot be made more than 12 months before clinical rotation.
Fall Clinical (August-December): Requests must be received by May 1.
Spring Clinical (January-May): Requests must be received by October 1.
Summer Clinical (June-July): Requests must be received by February 1.
